Catherine St-Laurent, who quit her role as chief-of-staff after less than a year but remains an adviser to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, described the couple as “incredibly talented and creative leaders”. And she hinted at Harry and Meghan’s future plans after the pair ditched royal duties last year, saying they “have the potential to be very influential leaders in the social-impact space” and that she looks forward to “continuing to be a part of that”.

Ms St-Laurent said: “It was an incredible experience.

“They are incredibly talented and creative leaders.

“I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to do that, to be able to be with them on their journey.

“The time that I spent with them was incredibly fulfilling.

“I think they have the potential to be very influential leaders in the social-impact space.

“I look forward to continuing to be a part of that.”

Ms St-Laurent quit her roles as the Sussexes’ chief-of-staff and chief executive of their Archewell charitable foundation in March.

But she remains a senior advisor to Archewell.

Ms St-Laurent took on her chief-of-staff and chief executive positions around the time Harry and Meghan quit royal duties in March 2020.

At the time, she said: “From our very first conversation, Harry and Meghan have expressed a deep commitment to improving lives and having a positive impact on society.

“Their perspective on the role that empathy, connection, and compassion can play in that mission is both deeply personal and incredibly timely.”
